Government takeover of oil companies

According to an e-mail I received from the Ameican Family Association:
Maurice Hinchey (D-NY) has called for the federal government to seize control of oil companies. In a Washington Examiner editorial piece, Rep. Hinchey said, “We [the government] should own the refineries. Then we can control how much gets out into the market.”

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) took the same approach, saying to oil industry executives: “Guess what this liberal (referring to herself) will be about? This liberal will be all about socializing - um, uh … will be about … basically … taking over, and the government running all of your companies.”
It's a bit like having Hugo Chavez and Fidel Castro in our own Congress! (and did you notice which party they below to?)

This is scary stuff and the sad part is that so many think this would be a good idea. The democrats have become the Marxist party. They have done a great job of concealing that, but these two loons and pitiful excuses of a congressman have revealed it for all to see.........
